The High Time Resolution Universe survey for pulsars and fast transients has yielded the discovery of a slow radio pulsar, PSR J1622-4950, that despite its high dispersion measure exhibited a highly variable flux density and integrated pulse profile. The pulsar shares many properties with the two previously known magnetars that emit radio pulsations, including a similarly high inferred magnetic field strength. In contrast to other magnetars, PSR J1622-4950 shows no observed variations in X-ray emission. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
